    5.0 - Excellent

    This was my first trek but I so hope it wont be my last!!! The destinations were amazing, some long driving days but NEVER a dull moment :-) So many things to do but never any pressure, the guide insisted that WE ran the trek and decided what to do (ranging from the optional activities to changing stopover venues to suit our desires. Most of all were the people. I went on my own but so did 90 per cent of the group, we left a firm friends and some of us have met up since for more adventures! The trek would not have been a sucess without the guide. He was awesome. Simples.

    4.0 - Good

    The destinations on this 5000 mile trek are amazing and there are so many different experiences to be had; from partying in New Orleans, doing a helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon or riding around Las Vegas in a limo. Some other favourite experiences included Betty & Rusty's cowboy camp in Arizona (the horseriding is a brilliant optional extra) and Monument Valley in Utah - sleeping in a Navajo hogan is the warmest night's camping you'll get if you do this trek in the middle of winter! There are a lot of optional extras on this trip so if you are planning to book it make sure you budget plenty for this - they're expensive but most of them are worth it! You also need to budget for things like tipping guides...and don't be afraid to ask to tip individually or to ask for individual bills in restaurants rather than splitting the bill between the group, all the places we visited were happy to do this! The only downside is the day in the Appalachian Mountains that's stated in the itinerary. This may have been down to our tour leader, but we seemed to skip this altogether, or merely drove through without any real experience of the mountains. Our tour guide was definitely a 'unique' character, and made a few stop-offs on the trip to see friends which, while interesting for us to meet these people, it didn't really seem necessary as you meet plenty of characters along the trip anyway. He also insisted on singing rather loudly with his music on the minibus, so if you want to sleep on the bus I suggest bringing a decent pair of headphones just in case! But don't be put off if you don't see eye-to-eye with your trek leader - I didn't and I still had an awesome trip. The places you visit and the things you do as you trek from New York to LA make it an amazing and unforgettable experience!
